Maps To the Stars
You can just feel the wheels in motion for the fall and the fall film festival season. While some of these films do not have U.S. release dates yet, many have openings just around the corner and many are already receiving international releases. And so we’ve collected a few new posters that have landed for a quartet of films that have already premiered elsewhere earlier this year, and will likely drop into theaters or festivals in the next six months.

The Zero Theorem
Yeah, we know. It seems like there have been a zillion trailers for this thing already, and you're right, there have been (not to mention a poster banned by the MPAA). But the U.S. release for Terry Gilliam's "The Zero Theorem" is finally on the horizon, so yes, that means another trailer, but it's a reminder that there are few filmmakers out there who deliver a cinematic experience quite like Gilliam.

Zero Theorem, alternate poster, crop
We’ve got our hands on a new “alternate version” of the poster for Terry Gilliam’s “The Zero Theorem” starring Christoph Waltz and featuring Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton and Matt Damon in supporting roles both big and small. You won’t see this version of the one sheet in theaters…well because, maybe it’s that butt centered right in the middle, but you could also call it a “leaked” poster if you like. Read More »

The Zero Theorem
To use the kind of metaphor Terry Gilliam might enjoy, it feels like the release of his new film “The Zero Theorem” has been getting closer and closer for eternity now without ever arriving, like that Greek paradox about the tortoise. It's now played a number of major festivals, been released in several countries and scheduled in many more, and released endless promo clips, stills and featurettes, but there's still no sign of a U.S. release date.

The Zero Theorem
With Terry Gilliam now moving on to his next film, "The Man Who Killed Don Quixote," with an early 2015 shoot being eyed, we're still waiting stateside for his latest film, "The Zero Theorem." However, the international rollout continues, and today comes another new trailer giving folks a taste of the futuristic world the filmmaker has conjured up this time around. So what's it about?

Terry Gilliam
As with most projects for Terry Gilliam these days, "The Zero Theorem" developed through a couple of different versions, before it shaped up into the one coming to theaters this summer. At one point, Billy Bob Thornton was slated to lead the film as Qohen, with Jessica Biel and Al Pacino in supporting roles. That didn't happen. But Thornton's exit from the project might not be for the reasons—negotiations, scheduling, finances—you might expect.

Zero Theorem
Terry Gilliam's “The Zero Theorem,” which is the very first thing on our Best Films on 2014 We've Already Seen list, and which our own Oliver Lyttleton gave a pretty decent review in Venice, finally found a US distributor a couple of weeks ago and will hit American screens this summer. In the meantime it's appearing in various parts of the world already, and was released in the UK last week.

The Zero Theorem
"Watchmen" may have come out five years ago, but it feels like yesterday given the back-and-forth that's happening through the various participants in the project. Joel Silver, producer of the version that was once slated be directed by Terry Gilliam, started the ball rolling by calling out Zack Snyder's film as being a "slave" to Alan Moore's comic. Snyder didn't take long to respond, declaring that his movie was made to "save it from the Terry Gilliams of the world," and now Gilliam himself has entered the fray.

The Zero Theorem
"It’s impossible to predict," Terry Gilliam told us last August on the eve of the world premiere of "The Zero Theorem" at the Venice Film Festival. "Fewer people have seen 'Zero Theorem' during the making of it and the editing of it than any film I’ve done. The basis of any predictions is not solid. Harry Knowles, he said it was the best thing I’ve done since 'Brazil' and watched it three times in a row. That kind of excitement and enthusiasm about a film is what I love and it doesn’t mean it’ll find a monstrously huge audience, but there's enough of an audience for it. I just keep clinging to the fact that 'The Wizard of Oz' and 'Singin’ in the Rain' weren’t big hits when they came out."

Terry Gilliam, Zero Theorem
Terry Gilliam is fast becoming one of our favorite interviewees, so in general we take every opportunity we can to talk to him. Just after its Venice premiere, we had a long chat about his new film and at-least-partial return to form, “The Zero Theorem,” and then early last month we talked again in Marrakech. Which meant that during our time with him at the Göteborg International Film Festival this week, we found ourselves in the unusually luxurious position of having time to talk about other things, cabbages and kings.
